We are delighted to announce that ERTC: Ask the Experts will be taking place in-person this coming October with our co-host Total.

The pandemic has provoked new challenges and opportunities for the refining industry and ERTC: Ask the Experts will provide process engineers with the platform to pose their burning questions to Europe’s leading experts. Resolve your major unit and process conundrums with your peers, including subjects around Hydroprocessing, Co-processing, FCC units, and Turnarounds.

 There has not been a better time for the industry to collaborate, network and resolve our cross-industry obstacles. Through our unique interactive and innovative formats including Q&A Panels, short demos and networking activities, all your questions will be answered.

UNIQUE FORMATS

Thanks to our extensive refining network at the World Refining Association, we have been able to collate the pressing onsite issues faced by Europe’s process engineers. With their questions to hand, we are looking for experts from across the globe to answer their problems in four exciting formats.

Experts in Action

These are short, sharp and snappy demonstrations highlighting the latest technology or solution with practical insight and explanation to application in a refinery.

You can present in a variety of ways but the main rule is that text and PowerPoints are banned.

Expert Q+A Panels

Your panel will be made up of both refiners and technology providers. Questions will be posed to you through the live interactive app Sli.do and live from the floor with our chuckable microphone. The moderator will guide the discussion and direct the specific questions for you to answer.

Be prepared to apply your practical refining knowledge to answer questions that will come from a wide range of themes.

Technical Workshops & Roundtables

Some problems cannot be resolved with a simple answer, which is why we have dedicated extended workshops and roundtables to get to the bottom of the issue. This allows for in-depth conversations to gauge engineer opinions and cross-industry knowledge sharing which cannot be achieved back in the office.

TOPICS

TOTAL ANTWERP REFINERY VISIT

After more than five years of work and capital expenditure of more than €1 billion, Antwerp — Total’s largest refining and petrochemicals complex in Europe — has completed its transformation. The complex is composed of a refinery that processes 338,000 barrels of crude oil per day, apetrochemical plant that manufactures base chemicals and a facility that produces polymers. It has been completely reorganized to meet three objectives: respond to market demand by manufacturing more light products that meet the strictest environmental standards, make the complex more flexible so it can use the most cost-advantaged feedstocks available and increase synergies between refining and petrochemicals.

With its 1,700 employees, Antwerp is poised to become one of Total’s most competitive complexes.
